What is DHA? Comparing Milk Formula for Ages 1 to 3 Years Old

What is Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)? As one milk formula claims, it helps the brain to communicate well. Simply put, it contributes to a child's intelligence. And that come's with a price.

Generally, milk formula with high DHA values per 100g powder are quite expensive. Our baby had been fed two (2) of what I consider the best formula DHA-wise, NAN HW and Enfapro A. Now that she has turned one (1) year old already, we have to shift her again to a follow-on formula.

Our options: the quite expensive NAN HW Three and Enfagrow A; the average-priced Gain and Neslac; and the very affordable Nido Jr. and Lactum, among others.

Upon checking the labels, I was surprised at how Nido Jr. fared well with the more expensive brands. The DHA content and other important nutrients are comparable, at almost half the price. I shall be seeking the opinion of her Pediatrician if choosing Nido Jr. over Enfagrow A will be a generally wise decision.
